Pros

Interesting work, you get to play with new technology
You get to honestly help people

It's retail and people are unconscionably rude.
The goals are clear, but often feel unattainable.

Advice to Management

Keep people motivated and remain fair and balanced.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My stores worked around your classes pretty well, paid better than almost any other retail store around. Most everyone there was pretty fun, its a good environment but like most stores a few bad managers can ruin that.

    Cons

    If you work on the sales floor they put a lot of pressure on you to sell insurance and other things that IMO are not such fantastic services. You can get in trouble for not always offering them.


  2. "Asset Protection"

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Fun work environment. It can be a great place to work if you are in school and you are looking for a job to hold you over.

    Cons

    Management can make or break the work environment. Weekends are a must (since it's retail). Pay is low even with several years of experience.
